MatadorU Travel Media School

MatadorU teaches beginner through advanced-level students how to produce travel media through writing, photography, and filmmaking. Our successful approach is based on experiential learning, or learning by doing: We don’t just rely on curricula and assignments, but proactively engage students around projects and publishing opportunities.

MatadorU prides itself on being a complete travel media ecosystem: Through course curriculum and working directly with faculty we give you the tools to be successful in your field, but that’s not all. As a student you will have exclusive access to real-world opportunities — getting published, participating in press trips, landing travel media jobs — giving you the chance to also learn “on-the-job” and network with professionals.
